Release Date: 1996
Director: Wes Craven
Starring: Neve Campbell, Courteney Cox, Matthew Lillard, Jamie Kennedy
Plot: A serial killer kills a lot of people and everyone tries to figure out what the fuck is going on.
Why it’s recommended: It’s a meta-horror movie, and it knows it’s a meta-horror movie. There are references out the ass, a scene that explains how to survive a horror movie, chilling murder scenes, and lots of blood.
Interesting Fact: At one point during the filming of the opening scene, somebody forgot to unplug the phone that Casey used to try and call the cops. This resulted in real, puzzled 911 operators hearing Drew Barrymore screaming for her life on the other end.
Best Line: “What’s your favorite scary movie.”
